Located just 2 hours from the Metro-Milwaukee area, 4 hours from Chicago and 5 hours from Minneapolis. Save the airfare and drive to the most beautiful lake setting in Wisconsin. Spencer Lake is a 70 acre lake with the clearest water around. This lake offers everything from having fun on your jet ski or motor boat (you can rent locally if you wish) to a quiet and relaxing paddle around in a canoe or kayak (one canoe and two kayaks included with the rental)
Note: During fall/winter/spring - please make your reservation at least 1 week in advance to be considered. We need to prepare the house for you.....it takes a little time. Thank you for your understanding.
This home is designed for YOU to enjoy, so everything is included from luxury bed linens, a great sound system and large flatscreen TV, Directv, wireless internet, fully appointed beautiful kitchen, relaxing soaking tub in one bathroom and spa multi/head shower experience in another. The bedrooms are tucked away in private areas of the house and there are multiple sleeping areas throughout for extra guests to sleep comfortably.
The property is listed with a 4 person occupancy. This is because there is private sleeping for 4 in 2 bedrooms. Other sleeping throughout the house would be appropriate for children, teens, young adults - those without the need for private sleeping. Occupancy is based on the ages of our guests and if the home and septic can handle your request. If you feel that your group would be a good fit for our home, please ask - we will consider all reasonable requests. The property is totally perfect for couples, two couples or for smaller extended family groups, ie: Grandparents, their kids and a couple grandkids. Thank you for your consideration. It is our desire to keep the property in pristine condition for our guests.

There is a winding 300 foot raised boardwalk through a wooded area for easy access to the beautiful and crystal clear Spencer Lake. You can see the lake from the house even in the summer when the trees are full of leaves - it is a breath-taking view all seasons of the year as you can see from the pictures we have included.
There is a creek along one side of the property for a fun to kayak down - the mouth of the creek is just to the left of our pier. Our lake front area is in a quiet and secluded part of the lake...a safe distance from where the motor boats go past so there is lots of room for safe swimming and raft floating all day long. We also have some blow-up rafts and noodles for you to use if you wish.
Year Purchased: 2008
Why the Owner Chose Waupaca, WI, USA:
I have spent time on this lake most summers for the past 45+ years! It is a great place to relax with a loved one, re-connect with family and to entertain special friends. The beautiful, crystal clear lake will call you back year after year! I love the local shops and restaurants and being near the Chain of Lakes area. The property is not on the Chain which makes our lake very private and peaceful but we still can take advantage of all that the Waupaca vacation area has to offer! It is a great area for families and couples.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a great place to spend time alone or to entertain guests. The lake is pristine and the local community is full of a variety of great restaurants and shops and galleries. I have spent time in this area almost every year since I was a small child - I currently live only an hour away but it still feels like I've completely gone on vacation when I step inside this lake home. My favorite times involve sitting at the end of the pier. Enjoying my morning coffee or a glass of wine during a sunset......good stuff!
